Smokey Quartz, Copper Heart, Wire Work Necklace

Image Description
Every element, but for the beads, in this necklace was made entirely by hand. I drew and hand cut the copper heart from sheet metal, textured it with a hammer, formed the slight curve at the edges, oxidized it and pierced a small hole at the top. I then wire wrapped a small Clear Quartz bead to the pendant and attached it to a Smokey Quartz bead. The ornately curved copper wire "hanger",every link and jump ring and the hook and eye clasp were also handmade by me. This is truly a one of a kind, labor of love necklace! The beautiful, soft brown, Smokey Quartz beads are faceted to capture and reflect light. The little clear bead resting and dancing on the heart reflects a glow whenever it is touched by a ray of light. This necklace is 18" long plus an additional 2" for the pendant and bail. It has been oxidized for a beautiful patina and several coats of Renaissance Wax have been added to protect the finish. This feminine piece is sure to win any ladies heart!
